What inspired and defined the language of representation of the project?
It is easy to compare my drawings with classical and modern comic authors (Hergé, Moebius and Otomo principally) as I was raised looking at these works and, in the absence of an art education, they formed the basis of my visual language. Other ‘conscious’ sources of inspiration would be all of the examples where modern painting, architecture and autonomous drawing worked together to form important artistic movements, here arts & Crafts, Sezession, German Expressionism, Pop Art and foremost baroque art are the best examples.
Cinema (Tarkovsky, Lynch, Kaurismaki) and literature (Grass, Bernhard and Goytisolo) also played a pivotal role in terms of the construction and composition of the project/drawings/illustrations, even though this is less evident to visualize.
